I sort of spent the whole day experimenting with these ingredients, which are new to me

 

1. Coconut OIl.  

Nutrient
Benefit for Skin
Lauric Acid
Naturally occurs in organic coconut oil. Effective against acne causing bacteria.
Caprylic Acid
Provides nurturing benefits to sensitive and oily skin. Anti-oxidant protection.
Vitamin E
Powerful antioxidant. Fights off free radicals that cause oxygen damage in skin cells. Removes acne scars.
Healthy Fats
For lubricating and moisturizing skin. Good for combination skin as well as peeling dry skin combined with acne.

 

 

2. Pearl Powder

anitseptic, purifying, toning, healing- for acne, enlarged pores, redness, wrinkles

 

3. Royal Jelly- from BeePollenBuzz.com

healing, hormone balancing, 10-HDA (hydration 40%-60% in a recent study , silicon for collagen, anti-oxidants and nutrients that support skin renewal such as flavonoids, nucleic acid, decanoic acid, enzymes, and estrogen.

Numerous vitamins and minerals such as B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, acetyl-choline and zinc can be found in royal jelly which are excellent for skin health. Studies indicate that the acids found in Royal Jelly contribute to its collagen production and promotion.

 

I applied these products three times today,

- the thinnest layer of coconut oil, letting it absorb and rinsing off excess, patting dry

- a tsp of Pearl Powder covering my entire face, neck

- a tbsp of Royal Jelly in honey, allow to absorb for an hour

 

Very rarely do I say "wow!" when I wipe off a mask, but I totally did.  My skin was firmer, my pores smaller and purged, my redness soothed, my persistent thick flakiness smoothed by 70% and a pesky deepening line in my face GONE.
